Springtime on the Wet Coast Pt 2

Postby Lizcordysmum » Apr 29, 2009 7:32 pm

I am hoping to have bouquets of lilacs and tulips...I need more warm weather for the lilacs, and the cool is great for the tulips of course.

And my clematis "Willy" bought this one in honour of small grandson Will.

Hope you've enjoyed these little views of my garden, as much as I am enjoying everyone else's...what a wonderful time of year!

I love springtime whether its on the Wet Coast or East Coast. (Unfortunately the dates are pretty far apart! :roll: ).
I love your little clemmi 'Willy'. Reminds me of a pink version of Bluebird.

I keep my Willy in a bucket...but I was zone 7-8b...last winter was the harshest yet...I think your Willy would have to come indoors if you keep it in a bucket! Says hardy to zone 3.

Enjoying your photos Liz.. Reminds me of programs previews, gives me a chance to see what is coming ahead and loving it.
